2021 Canada Summer Games
If you ever want to figure out how the economic impact of an event is calculated, take a look at something like Ontario's Tourism Regional Economic Impact Model (TREIM). I have frequently used it with tourism related grant requests where supplying an estimate of my attraction's economic impact was required.
Looks like Guelph has decided not to move forward with Waterloo Region in campaigning / hosting the event.
Time to start spreading the word and building excitement for our local bid for the 2021 Summer Games. A new website and social media have been launched ahead of a visit from the evaluation team on February 28. Further details are available at WeRally2021.ca.

Other cities competing for the games are Ottawa, Niagara Region and Sudbury.
The list of local venues that would see action in the games:


News Release:
The Canada Summer Games Bid Evaluation Team is coming to town and we need your help and energy to show them why Waterloo Region is the BEST place in Ontario to host the 2021 Games.‎

Please join us, and our co-emcees Mandy Bujold and Mike Farwell, for a community rally at THEMUSEUM starting at 11:00am on Tuesday February 28th.

The rally will take place in front of THEMUSEUM at 10 King Street in Downtown Kitchener. Volunteers will be handing out free toques, signs and noise makers to help you make a big impact. A free lunch, compliments of Piller’s Fine Foods and Weston Bakeries will be served following the formal remarks and special presentation.

Food and supplies are limited to the first 650 people.
A special thank you to the Cities of Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo for their assistance in hosting this rally.
Please dress appropriately for the weather, as the rally will be held outside within the block between Queen and Ontario Streets.

We look forward to seeing you on the 28th, and if you haven’t already done so, please add your name to the list of supporters for Waterloo Region to win the 2021 Canada Summer Games at http://www.werally2021.ca
The bid has been lost, to Niagara Region.

I really thought Ottawa was going to win the bid.
